Cream of the Crop, 1st Place Features

Judges

Some very nice images. Would like to have seen more news value in the general news category, some of the multiples needed a tighter edit. Very good sports, especially the local, high school sports. Judged by the Photo Department of the Kalamazoo Gazette in Kalamazoo, MI. Judges were: Jill McLane Baker, staff photographer; Mark Bugnaski, staff photographer; Jonathon Gruenke, staff photographer; Jennnifer Harnish, photo intern; Bradley S. Pines, photo editor; Scott Harmsen, Director of Photography.

Interesting take on an event that probably happens every year. Puts the reader at the scene. Simple, clean design enhances the hat weave shadow pattern.

Humor plays a part in this photo’s success as well. Posture, facial expression, composition all work together.

The hands make a nice moment and portray what’s going on at the funeral. Could have been stronger if cropped tighter.
